Dunno about anyone else, but the Army didn't teach me to hit someone's head on a bamboo cage, killing them in a fairly improbable manner. They DID teach some elementary grappling, but any white belt in judo or brazilian jiu jitsu already knows how to pull off a cross collar choke or triangle. Not as bad as everyone who outranks someone being called "sir" despite not being an officer, but still. Do five minutes of research, game makers!

I assumed he meant that the army taught him to stay calm in those situations, think rationally and come up with a plan of action using improvised techniques. Not that they literally have a class on how to kill a dude with a bamboo cage.

This topic goes into the "some in-game minutiae contradicts the one fact I know, so I must talk about to make sure everyone knows that I know something" file.

It goes right next to that airline pilot who complained about how unrealistic Lost's plane-crash scenario was.

Disagree. For those who actually have experience in one field or another, glaring oversights such as the aforementioned "Sir!" thing are an immersion killer. However, feel free to bash someones opinion regardless. Maybe if you stumbled across in game dialogue confusing Star Wars and Star Trek, you'd feel the same way lol.

They do make mention about how he "was a natural with a gun".

Sometimes that sort of thing doesn't bother me, but yeah. I mean, I'm all for telling people that the damage wildlife is doing to you in this game is actually less than it would really do when they complain about tigers, cassowaries or bears being 'overpowered' because they two-hit you, when IRL they would probably one-hit you.

I did get a laugh out of that line, though.
